Chinese New Year and Celebrating the year of the pig:
It’s safe to say that our team and customers thoroughly enjoyed our latest theme day menu. To celebrate Chinese New Year and the year of the pig our teams whipped up a menu not to be missed. There was something for everyone to love. The menu included Sweet and sour Cantonese pork, Sweet and sour chicken, Chinese Beef and Mushroom and Sweet and sour battered Vegetables.
The Pig is the twelfth of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. Pig was late because he overslept. Another story says that a wolf destroyed his house. He had to rebuild his home before he could set off. When he arrived, he was the last one and could only take twelfth place.
The Pig is also associated with the Earthly Branch (地支—dì zhī) hài (亥), and the hours 9–11 in the night. In terms of yin and yang (阴阳—yīn yáng), the Pig is yin. In Chinese culture, pigs are the symbol of wealth.
Their chubby faces and big ears are signs of fortune as well
